Hi all

I have setup Mailman via a Debian package. It's Mailman version 2.1.15
from Debian 1:2.1.15-1+deb7u1

On the listinfo page if I select from the languages only part of the 
page is translated. An example below is for Spanish.

I thought it might be due to customization of the files in 
mailman/lists/XXX-announce/en/ but I have removed those and restarted 
mailman (to clear any caching) and still the pages are only partially 
translated. I have installed a second mailman on another machine and a 
clean install with no customization of templates still shows "standard 
mailman text" as English.

/var/lib/mailman/messages/ shows all the .mo and .po files are present.

Of course my List Name & Description will only be in English but the 
standard text should all be translated.

The options login page is fully translated. But once logged in the
mailing list membership configuration page is also only partially 

Example for Spanish below.
The first line under "Subscribing to XX" is in English, then just one 
paragraph translated. The "XXX-announce Subscribers" section is translated.
